Toshiba DB-EA4D Recommended Settings

Firmware

For a Toshiba DB-EA4D printer without a peeler, the recommended firmware is GENT4 version 0046. [GENT4MAIN_0046.bin]

Print Driver

For optimal printing, Minisoft recommends our proprietary print driver for the Toshiba DB-EA4D printer. Our print driver has the following benefits:

  1. Connect directly to Linux, HP/UX, AIX and iSeries systems without a Windows print server.
  2. Improved resolution (no re-scaling between the document and the printer).
  3. Easy parcel shipper connectivity.
  4. Reduced file size and increased print speeds.

To configure Minisoft’s proprietary print driver, simply switch the Toshiba DB-EA4D driver to Generic / Text Only. If the Generic / Text Only option does not show up in the drop-down menu, select New Driver and add it.
